New Blog Home

I have recently decided to switch off of the WordPress CMS blogging system in favor of building my own static website to have more control over the presentation and features of the blog.

WordPress has certainly been a wonderful medium in enabling me to express my thoughts, ideas and experiences regarding my ongoing path of self-understanding over the last three and a half years.

My goal towards migrating this blog over to my own website is primarily for the benefit of having more control over the presentation of my blog and learning how to present my blog.

My new blog home is located at https://mbchoa.github.io/discipline

Cheers!

Week2 – Day5A

Weight:  183.4

Squats:  5x5x65
Bench:  5x10x55
Rows:  2x10x75 + 3x5x75

Dips:  6/4/2

Prowler:  4 + 2

Prowlers sucked the life out of me again.  Pushed it with no plates on it this time and did 2 sets of runs.  4 reps back to back then 2 reps back to back.  Did 10 reps on the bench again.  The weight is still relatively light.  Rows got pretty heavy today.  Did 10 reps on the first 2 sets then 5 reps on the last 3 sets.  Dips were surprisingly easy today.  Managed to crank out 6/4/2 reps.

Week1 – Day3A

Weight:  182.4

Squats:  5x5x55
DB Incline Bench:  5×50 + 4x10x50
Rows:  5×70 + 4x10x70

Prowler:  10lbs * 4 reps

Dips:  4/2/2

Everything was pretty peachy today.  That’s until I decided to push the prowler.  I was aiming for 5 reps, thinking to myself, “This ought to be pretty easy!”  Man was I utterly wrong.  My legs were completely obliterated in a matter of 3 minutes flat.  I was experiencing all the symptoms of complete exhaustion: head in a daze, jello legs, sucking in air like it was my job.

Other lifts were light.  Less soreness overall.  Performed high reps on the bench and rows since they were so light.

I’m pretty happy that there’s a prowler at the gym now.  The new space below the gym is rarely occupied, so it’s a great place to warm up and push the prowler around.

Week1 – Day1A

Weight:  182

Squats:  5x5x45
DB Incline Bench:  3x10x30
Rows:  5x5x60

Dips:  3

Pretty packed gym today.  3 squat racks were all being used.  Kindly asked a couple who were squatting if I could work in using an empty bar.  Got some confused and/or upset gestures.  Seems like the question did not compute properly.  Decided to clean the bar off the ground, press overhead and drop the bar behind the neck instead.  My right shoulder held up, but I don’t believe any behind the neck pressing movements are the best for them.  Nonetheless, I managed to get my core lifts in.  The two bench stations were also being used and so I was not able to use them.  Instead, I performed incline dumbbell presses.
